Flu Vaccination Plan - September 2020

This year we have to follow social distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff.  We are offering the unique opportunity for you to make an appointment and attend our new drive-through and walk-through flu vaccination clinics.  These will enable us to maintain safe social distancing measures and minimise the potential for cross infection.  You can have your eligible flu vaccine safely in the comfort of your own vehicle without the need to leave your car. 

Please ensure you have an arranged appointment when you attend the drive-thru, otherwise you will not be able to have the vaccine. THIS IS NOT A DROP-IN DRIVE-THRU SERVICE - AN APPOINTMENT MUST BE MADE IN ADVANCE
